Week or weekend season ticket
You can usually use your student travel product to travel in the Netherlands for free or at a discount. But you still have to choose whether you want to do that during the week or on weekends.
Free during the week or in the weekends
Do you live at home? Then a week season ticket is handy for travel to your courses. Do you live in rented accommodation? Then a weekend season ticket will probably suit you better. Please note: with a weekend season ticket you do not receive a discount between 07.00 and 09.00 on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday but can travel with a 40% discount for the rest of the week.
When can you travel for free or at a discount?
